Have any of you tried this <a href="http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/doll.html" target="_blank">http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/doll.html</a> pattern yet? I want to make one for my son who loves babies for Christmas. I was thinking of weighting them in the legs, butt, and arms to make it a bit more realistic. Any ideas of what I should use to weight it?

From a google search: (No experience here, but want to try the pattern)<br><br>
Popular weighting materials are:<br>
White play sand<br>
Kitty litter<br>
Saw dust (especially cedar)<br>
Plastic pellets purchased at hobby stores<br>
Rice and dry beans (placed in sealed plastic baggies to keep bugs away)

Thank you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Can I buy sand at a craft store? Sorry if that seems like a silly question! I've decided to not use Jan's pattern, but after looking at several tuts just wing it, I like the "My Baby" look, I think that's a dancing rain something pattern, so I'm going to make mine similar to that style. I've got the pattern drawn just waiting for the material to dry!

I think that millet is used in the "Heavy Baby" on Joy's Waldorf Dolls.
